Carlos Ernesto Ochoa, Jr.

CARLOS ERNESTO OCHOA JR., age 50 of Waseca, died on Thursday, August 15, 2019.

Born in Stockton, CA on February 3, 1969, Carlos was the son of Carlos Sr. and Maria (Leon) Ochoa.  He graduated from Manteca High School with the class of 1987.  In the years that followed he lived in Tucson, AZ, Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, the Bay area in California, and eventually made his way to Waseca.  Waseca quickly became home for Carlos, and he was happy to settle into the peaceful life he had been searching for.  He was an avid Oakland Raiders fan and he loved super-hero movies, especially Batman.  Carlos worked at Bosch in Owatonna.  He enjoyed spending time with friends and family, and he had an especially soft spot in his life for his parents.

Carlos is survived by both of his parents, Carlos Sr. and Maria Ochoa of Waseca; four children, Justin Ochoa of San Diego, CA, Andrew and Grace Ochoa of Alliance, NE, and Jaxyn Ochoa of Waseca; one granddaughter, Yiara Ochoa of San Diego, CA; and three siblings, Martha (Wesley) Artherton of Ripon, CA, Rick (Nicole) Ochoa of Spokane, WA, and Norma (Greg) Shreve of Modesto, CA.  He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents; and two special cousins, Anthony “Marcos” Leon and Jose “Little Joe” Leon.

Carlos will be interred at St. John's Catholic Cemetery in Escalon, CA.  His family will host a dedication mass at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Owatonna at 11:00AM on Thursday, August 22, 2019.
